This machine may look like an ordinary mini-cultivator, but it's much more than that; it's a multi-tasking yard care system. You can customize your MM 55 C-E Yard Boss with aerator, sweeper, edger, and other attachments (which will cost you less money and space than it would to fill your garage with a bunch of single-function machines). This all-in-one will lend its ergonomic, folding handles and Easy2Start system, which eliminates the need for a fast-pull starting cord, to all of its soil and yard prep functions. This is another high-power, low-weight tool out-of-the-box, but you can add weight to it as needed for tough or rocky ground that's harder to work.
